    heres a question for everyone, from leaving your front door, to say to go to the shops, work, hospital, city or whatever, how long does it take you and by what method.

    ie, myself from Wynn Vale Golden Grove shops

     

    work, by car 13kms each way, 15 minutes in the morning at 0415, 25 at night at 5pm.

    Tea Tree Plaza by car average 8 mins

    City by car 25 mins on average, by bus using O bahn from Golden Grove 40 mins on average.

    Beaches nearest 20 mins on average

    Local shops at Golden Grove Village walking 5 minutes
